The BCSLA Board of Examiners set and administer this jurisprudence examination that is necessary for the registration of members in the British Columbia Society of Landscape Architects. They review the applicants' qualifications and determine acceptability.
Appearance before the BCSLA Board of Examiners is the last step towards licensure as a landscape architect in British Columbia and is essential to ensure that an individual has demonstrated sufficient local knowledge, skill, and ability to practice the profession in BC while protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.
The role of the BCSLA Board of Examiners is a general check on the Standards of Professional Conduct and Practice at the point of entry through an examination as defined in the Architects (Landscape) Act [RSBC 1996] Chapter 18, Section 8 and as per the BCSLA Bylaws.
The 2022 BCSLA Board of Examiners schedule is April 29, May 13, July 8, September 16 and November 25, 2022. The September and November dates are tentative and subject to the confirmation of appointments by the Crown Agencies and Board Resource Office. Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will administer the Board of Examiners via a virtual platform until it is safe to gather. More Information.
